Spiritual But Not Religious

From dKosopedia

While the non-religious are one of the most rapidly growing religious classifications in the United States, the majority of the people who identify as "non-religious" do not view themselves with either Atheism or as an Agnosticism. But, many people who identify themselves as "non-religious" would more commonly view themselves as "spiritual but not religious". Most are not affiliated with any particular denomination, although the Unitarians probably comes closest to the views of more people who identify themselves as "spiritual but not religious" than any other denomination or faith. Many see themselves a "Seekers" working to craft their own worldview, often from common sense, a residual Christian heritage and bits and pieces of religious and metaphysical ideas from various sources. Many have rejected stricter and more Orthodox versions of Christianity or Judaism, but continue to believe that there is a god or higher power at work in the world. Many also have simply not thought deeply about religious issues, neither embracing a faith, nor firmly rejecting faith in general. The "not religious" religious classification is one of the most politically liberal demographics (rivaled only by black churchgoers and Jews).
